Green Tomato Pie Recipe

Green Tomato Pie Recipe

When frost nips our garden, I quickly gather all the green tomatoes still on the vine and make this old family favorite. It's been handed down from my grandmother, and now my granddaughters are asking for the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 cups thinly sliced green tomatoes (about 4 to 5 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add tomatoes and vinegar; toss to coat.
  • 2. Line a pie plate with bottom crust. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until tomatoes are tender. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I have made this for my church picnic potluck. When I made it I added apples that I sliced thin and mixed in between the tomato slices. I also added plump raisins to my pie. This was the first time and first time for the church members to try. They all enjoyed it very much and ate it all. [Apples good to use: Granny Smith, Gala, Winesap or Braburn]"

"i HAVE BEEN MAKING GREEN TOMATO PIE FOR YEARS, THIS IS A GOOD RECIPE, HOWEVER I ALWAYS USE 3 HEAPING TABLESPOONS OF TAPIOCA FOR THE FLOUR IN THE FILLING. AS TO THE LADY WITH THE SLIMY PIE. THE TOMATOES WERE PROBABLY VERY JUICY AND MAYBE HER SLICES WERE TO THIN."

"When I made this recipe, it was so slimy that we had to throw the whole pie out. Does anyone know why this would happen?"
